After watching the first 6 episodes of season 3 you often ask yourself,  “what’s going to happen next?” A trend that follows through to the very end, leaving you that much more excited for what is to come. 

The second half is all about finding yourself, and that’s a note they hit on hard. 

It was a delight to see this season devote a whole episode to Karen and her backstory. Until this, the slight background provided was through her hardships and what brought her to Hell’s Kitchen. Visually, it adds a new level to her character and creating her story to intimate and heartbreaking. A fantastic job was done in fleshing out and shaping her into a relatable character.

Poindexter really shines, but not the way you’d like to see.

He begins to embrace his murderous villainy and lets loose at every opportunity he gets. Not taking failure for an option he fixates on his bloodbath, making it hard for him to think straight, or become eased and collective. To Poindexter, the newsroom massacre was more than seamlessly killing people. It was him finally accepting who he is and where he’s headed in becoming. One thing holding him back from achieving his goals is Murdock. 

With the realization that Fisk was playing him for a fool, leaving him with no guidance other than himself. Is a change in step for the character. He was someone who needed his “North Star” but now he’s truly alone.

We see a huge shift in Nadeem and how that affects him.

Played all along just as Dex. The choices he made that led him to be a part of a hit squad and taking down other gangs in Fisk’s favor. He even drives Dex to kill Karen at the church, which was the last straw for him. At the end of his story, he does everything in his power to help change the tide of this street war and ultimately ends in an uninsightful way.

With the kingpin himself, it is furthered on how much of a threat he really is. Perhaps one of the more interesting ones. His whole purpose was to return to his love Vanessa and once he finally does, she helps him remember who he is. Allowing her to be apart of the criminal underworld that he deeply rooted in. Keeping his head straight even in high-stress situations.

Lastly the Devil himself, Matthew Murdock. He finally comes to terms that he isn’t alone in this world. People do care about him and with his friends, they can do great things.

Murdock was near to losing all hope in God. In the end, he finds him as he emerges back into a strong vigilante. Struggling with the idea of killing a man to save thousands and fear that it’ll send him down a path in which he’ll never come back from. To only see him come out on top and not cross a line that he has been so adamant on not crossing.

With all of this being said, I do hope to see a season 4 of Daredevil. Even with all the drama surrounding Marvel Netflix, it still does look like the fans might get what they want.

Score: 10/10
